The NJR Implant Scrutiny Committee reports Level 1 outlier implants to the MHRA. There are currently 11 hip stems, nine hip acetabular (cup) components and 29 hip stem / cup combinations reported. A total of 14 knee brands are currently reported. Knee implants with and without patella resurfacing are now included in implant outlier analysis.
An implant is considered to be a Level 1 outlier when its Prosthesis Time Incident Rate (PTIR) is more than twice the PTIR of the group, allowing for confidence intervals. These are shown as the number of revisions per 100 prosthesis-years. As of March 2015, we have started to identify the best performing implants, these would have a PTIR less than half that of their group, allowing for confidence intervals. To date no implants have reached that level.
Components and constructs previously reported to MHRA, but no longer at Level 1, are not listed.
Hip implant performance
Best performing hip implants
There are no hip implants or combinations performing statistically less than half their expected PTIR.
Knee implant performance
Best performing knee implants
There are no knee implants performing statistically less than half their expected PTIR.
